RADIO // Our Correspondents: TokyoWakamatsu Masadayu and Shizuru Otaka
Plan B is an artist-run performance space in Tokyo founded in 1981. Wakamatsu Masadayu extends a medieval oral tradition developed by traveling musicians with story-songs that can last up to six hours. This is an excerpt. Also on the program is Shizuru Otaka, a classically trained singer who also enjoys a career in commercial pop, with several hundred recordings to her credit, a band called Futon Logic, and a very particular way with every kind of song, in Japanese and English.
